Conquering Cancer with Parent Essential Oils

In Uncategorized on July 3, 2013 at 6:22 pm

Once again a popular health recommendation is called into question. Omega 3’s—are they part of the solution or part of the problem? Professor Brian Peskin, author of The Hidden Story of Cancer and a world-leading scientist specializing in parent EFAs—termed PEOs, shows that it is quite possible that we have been misled with regards to Omega’s 3’s. Are we misguided and unknowingly increasing our risk for cancer? There are only two true EFAs: Parent omega-6 and Parent omega-3.  Fish oil is only derivatives like EPA and DHA.   They are not essential as your body makes these from the “parent” just fine. Could an “oil change” prevent or cure cancer? Do fish oils really prevent heart disease?  The New England Journal of Medicine just published their total failure. Peskin was on my show Tuesday and provided some much needed answers. Although often quite technical, here is what you need to know:

Brian Peskin 1While advancing the scientific understanding of the role of essential fatty acids in the body’s metabolic pathways, Peskin has concurrently developed a means for alleviating cancer’s prime cause, as proven by German Nobel Prize winner Otto Warburg, M.D., Ph.D., by increasing cellular oxygenation. Amazingly, there is a fundamental cancer/heart disease connection, in which the same physiologic solution–parent essential oils (PEOs), solves both conditions.

“Americans suffer a widespread functional parent omega-6 DEFICIENCY”

Warburg found that the prime cause of cancer is oxygen deprivation at the cellular level.   Cancer cells function in an oxygen-deprived state and metabolically ferment sugar to lactic acid, enabling the cancer cell to ferment sugar very rapidly and to produce large quantities of energy for rapid reproduction (cell proliferation).  With just one-third less cellular oxygen than normal, you develop cancer.  But what is causing the impairment of oxygen transport?

The body requires special fats which make it possible for sufficient oxygen to reach the cells via the cell membranes.  These special fats are highly oxygen-absorbing entities called essential fatty acids (EFAs) and he calls them PEO’s (Parent Essential Oils).  Peskin determined that it is the relative deficiency of “parent” omega-6 fatty acids relative to omega-3 fatty acids that disrupts the cellular membranes, disabling cellular oxygenation.  Greater cellular oxygen deprivation is directly correlated with a worse prognosis, shorter lifespan, and great risk of metastases.

Omega KrillPhysicians and their patients are being misled. Tragically, physicians are prescribing what they think are essential fatty acids (EFAs) to their patients, but they aren’t. The body does utilize a small amount of omega 3’s, but we are once again out of balance and eating the wrong kinds of fats. Most of our omega 6’s come in the form of adulterated toxic, processed, rancid oils.  We have to stop taking fish oil supplements and other concentrated sources of omega 3’s. Peskin explains at length how fish and their oils become instantly rancid and the damage they impose; he explains in detail why many so-called EFA supplements are not EFAs but EFA derivatives that the body makes just fine but the overdoses in those supplements are very harmful.  Peskin spoke of the failure of fish oils to prevent heart disease and how patients typically don’t die from breast cancer (if there is no metastasis), but rather from cardiovascular disease.  He explained at length how PEO’s are the solution. The science behind the omega 3 recommendation just isn’t there.

Okay coach, so what do we do?

Peskin says we need to include more walnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and unadulterated organic oils such as sunflower and safflower into our diet.  We should eat organic cheese, butter, eggs and cream.  Grass fed meat is great.  Can’t eat enough of these?  PEO supplements are an option.  The key to a better health is to increase supplemental sources of undamaged parent omega-6 instead of exclusively taking excess omega-3 supplements that the body does not need or want.  Peskin advocates a balanced blend of both fully functional parent omega-6 and parent omega-3 in a ratio of about 2:1 in favor of parent omega-6.

 “Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex. It takes a lot of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.” Albert Einstein, 1879-1955

Peskin also believes that because our skin has no omega-3 in its structure, the shortage of proper omega 6’s, alongside copious overdoses of 3’s plays a significant role in the increase of the incidence of skin cancer; far from the popular opinion that the sun is the culprit. And given the rising rates of cancer, acknowledging that cancer is not the genetic disease it was once thought to be, and the fact that our omega 3’s are not the knights we thought they were, perhaps we need to rethink our oils.

This information could prove to be one of the most significant health discoveries of the 21st century.  Many thanks to Professor Brian Peskin for enlightening us to a truth we must face or at the very least investigate and consider.  For more on Peskin’s theory and solution for cancer, please read: EFAs, Oxygenation, and Cancer Prevention: A New Solution and visit his website, http://www.brianpeskin.com/. The Hidden Story of Cancer is available at www.pinnacle-press.com and you can register on Peskin’s site to be notified on the release of his new book, PEO Solution: Conquering cancer, Diabetes and Heart Disease with Parent Essential Oils.  (ETA November 2013).

“You are about to discover how it is possible for “the humble reasoning of a single individual” to provide an insight into cancer prevention that has been missed by the world’s leading cancer research centers. The solution has not come from highly credentialed academia nor their pet field of genetics, because the development of cancer in an individual has nothing to do with a genetic cause and this area of research has only obfuscated the issue. As recognized by Galileo four centuries ago, the “authority” of the many is still irrelevant—in this case in finding cancer’s solution, because the cancer researchers’ reasoning is faulty.Albert Einstein’s quote is also fitting in relation to the so-called “war on cancer” because, in sum, over the past three plus decades, cancer researchers have repeatedly overcomplicated the subject and their developments have been devoid of fundamental insight. In the absence of Nobel Prize-winner Otto Warburg, M.D.’s simple, yet profound cancer discoveries, there would be little hope of ever finding effective prevention or the “cure”―witness over 35 years of research and trillions of dollars spent, resulting in embarrassingly little progress. In contrast, The Hidden Story of Cancer uses Albert Einstein’s simplifying approach to focus on an elegant and scientifically correct anti-cancer solution.” (Excerpt shared with the permission of Sid Aust)

~~If you don’t know your options, you don’t have any~~

Professor Brian Peskin, BSEE, MIT, is the world’s leading scientist specializing in physiologic parent EFAs— termed PEOs—and their direct relationship to the prevention and treatment of both cancer and cardiovascular disease.  Peskin’s discoveries, grounded strictly in state-of-the-art science—in particular, physiology— can be found in his seminal work The Hidden Story of Cancer, and soon to be released PEO Solution with Dr. Robert Rowen, MD, peer-reviewed and complementary/integrative medical journal articles, and his clinical (in vivo) oncology PEO pre-treatment experiment in mice. The seminal I.O.W.A. Study (Investing Oils With respect to Arterial health) conclusively showed PEOs are markedly superior to fish oil supplementation.

  1. Elyn,
    on amazon.com the book is $969 used…that is incorrect…It would be best to put the link to pinnicle press and purchase the book there…

    • I know….I put that link in for the info, but included the pinnacle press so people can order it….
      thanks for everything Sid!

  2. Are you saying it is not healthy to eat salmon or sardines?

    • Hi Mary,
      Peskin believes that we should not eat seafood and provides a good argument. However, as both of those have health benefits and if you enjoy them, then you can make your own conclusions and include them in your diet. I happen to enjoy seafood, so for now, while I have given up supplements, I do enjoy the real thing on occasion. That said, please be sure to eat enough healthy 6’s so you stay in balance–something I think is extremely important. I do not recommend farmed salmon or really any farmed seafood and I am not comfortable with canned goods, so if you can buy sardines in a jar, that would be best.
      my best,

  3. IS THIS TRUE?: “In January 2003, the District Court of Harris County, Texas issued a permanent injunction ordering Peskin and his company to pay $100,000 to the State of Texas and to refrain from making certain claims [1]. Among other things, the injunction ordered that Peskin must refrain from:
    (i) “Advertising or labeling any food product or drug which makes any express or implied claims that such product will …(4) reduce the risk of breast, prostate and other cancers…”
    (ii) “Representing, expressly or by implication, in any advertising of any product, that Defendant Brian Scott Peskin is a ‘scientist,’ ‘Professor,’ or ‘Doctor,’ or that Brian Scott Peskin is the ‘holder of the Emeritus Life-Systems Engineering Chair, College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences at Texas Southern University’ ”
    The sad truth is that despite no actual data to back up any of his claims this man has gained a bit of an audience and his unscientific and misleading claims have the potential to cause a great deal of harm. He has now somehow gotten past the peer-reviewers in the Journal Lipids and his article has now gotten national press coverage. If you get the actual article in the Journal of Lipids you will see that Peskin is the sole author and that in author information he says he is from the International PEO Society in Houston TX (This is HIS COMPANY that does NO SCIENCE and his email is listed as prof-peskin@peskin@peskinpharma.com.
    My guess is this email is in breach of the court injunction against him about misrepresenting himself as a professor or scientist or doctor or having anything to do with pharmacological science. This guy is a joke but a dangerous one because he is getting press.
    The fact that this guy got his absurd interpretation of “science” published in a journal and then this got national headlines is more than shocking, it is alarming. The fact that doctors and the general public will have their opinions and choices influenced by this is criminal…We have been getting an increasing amount of enquiries regarding unfounded, unsubstantiated, and unscientific statements questioning the benefits and safety of fish oil supplementation. Most of these stem from one source, a self proclaimed “nutrition and health expert” and self proclaimed “professor” named Peskin – and from a few of his blind faith followers. I had a small number of emails about this a few years ago but when I looked into Peskin himself and his outrageous claims both were so absurd that I did not waste my time to formally critique or respond.
    As soon as you get past Peskin’s own grandiose claims about himself it becomes immediately obvious that he is neither a professor nor an expert. He has a bachelor’s degree in engineering, no formal education or credentials in healthcare, nutrition, physiology, chemistry, or biochemistry, he is not a professor at any accredited post-secondary institution, and his claims of his self attained nutritional expertise (which he claims in his book “The Hidden Story of Cancer” have provided him the sole ability to solve cancer) are backed by nothing more than his own claims that he visited a library with a lot of books in it and that he is a nutritional consultant for a flag football team in Italy. (Are you kidding me??!!) ”
    I just read ^ what was in the quotes…do you know anything about ^ , thanks

    • Scott, I think what you have to understand is the FDA and everyone along those lines goes after anyone who does not support them. Doctors prescribe medicines that kill–drugs that are approved by the FDA and marketed to doctors as safe and effective. That is criminal. Yet someone who makes a good case on the use of a natural substance–or a case against one, is taken to court. Please replay my show on this: May 6th, 2014–Deadly Medicines and Organized crime-what you need to know about prescription drugs and your health with Professor Peter Gotzsche
      It is clearly the FDA and the drug companies that we need to go after. Now this is not to say that Brian’s theory is accepted by all or 100% correct. Fish oils, despite the perils he speaks of, do have merit–serious merit. Often it takes a non AMA person to find real answers.
